If the song's not by Drake you won't hear it on an FM radio station based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The station began broadcasting in the new all-Drake format over the weekend. That's when the city's all-gospel channel moved to a new frequency, leaving behind what has been rebranded on Instagram and Twitter as Drake 92.7.

There is speculation the station is playing songs by the Toronto rapper around the clock, as a marketing ploy, ahead of what it is calling a "special announcement" planned for later on Monday.

Rumours that Drake himself has purchased the station have been dismissed because under FCC (Federal Communications Commission) rules, foreign ownership of U.S. broadcast stations is not allowed.
